Encouraging Song of the Week: “Soldier On” (Apollo LTD w/Lyrics)

I have been through hard times in my Christian life and as a pastor in Christian ministry and really like this song as I have “soldiered on” even when it probably made more sense to give up and am glad I did. Defined idiom: soldier on means to continue doing something with determination or resolve, despite difficulties or an unlikely chance of succeeding.

Lyrics

Giants in my way and they stand so tall
But You make me brave and I watch them fall
See the arrows fly, but they can’t touch me
‘Cause You’re on my side
You’re my victory

You are my victory

So I’m gonna soldier, soldier, soldier on
So I’m gonna soldier, soldier, soldier on
Every day is a battle You’ve already won
So when the night is long, I soldier on

Bring the enemies on
Bring ’em if they dare
‘Cause You’re just that strong
And I’m not that scared
They can knock me down
But You pick me up
Gonna hold my ground
In the name of love

So I’m gonna soldier, soldier, soldier on
So I’m gonna soldier, soldier, soldier on
Every day’s a battle You’ve already won
So when the night is long, I soldier on

I won’t fear the attack
No retreat, no turning back
You’re my shield to the end
You’re my strength to fight again

You are my victory

So I’m gonna soldier, soldier, soldier on
So I’m gonna soldier, soldier, soldier on
Every day’s a battle You’ve already won
So when the night is long, I soldier on

So I’m gonna soldier, soldier, soldier on
So I’m gonna soldier, soldier, soldier on
Every day’s a battle You’ve already won
So when the night is long, I soldier on
